A.G.V. Control System

Abstract

The goal of this project is to make a feasible concept, develop control algorithms of practical value and implement software modules for AGV Control System for Euroimpianti (EI) Automated Guided Vehicles. Among others, main project tasks encompass development and implementation of a path-planning and path-tracking algorithms intended for AGV motion along straight-line and arc path segments. Compatibility with the EI layout and path planner must be achieved. The project tasks also include on-line calculation of position and speed references, implementation of PI and fuzzy logic path tracking controllers and building a simulation model of the AGV Control System for testing of developed algorithms. Compatibility with the AGV’s on-board PLC program must be achieved.
